Medium Pressure Mercury Arc Lamps
Medium pressure mercury lamps emit discrete radiation at 290, 313, 365, 405, 436, 547 and 579 nm. Radiation below 290 nm are filtered out by the borosilicate envelop. Although this source is not intended to simulate daylight, it is used to induce the same photochemical processes as daylight. Mercury arc lamps provide a constant radiation level for a period of approx. 4000 hours.

Whether in a hot, dry desert or a warm, humid subtropical climate or in an extreme alpine region, a car has to function and function properly. Solar simulation testing systems help guarantee functionality in any climate or condition. Atlas has the instruments and know-how you need for performing solar simulation.
The SUNTEST® XXL+ is an air cooled, flatbed xenon instrument that offers daylight according to CIE 85, ASTM, ISO and other full spectrum xenon technology standards. Perfect for crystalline and thin-film mini modules, OPV, as well as a variety of materials and smaller components such as junction boxes.
Atlas' history started in 1918 with Light fastness testing instruments for the textile industry. Today, we still help guide the critical decisions in design, manufacturing and purchasing of textiles and garments by helping detect the materials and processes that cause fading by light.
HMV Horizontal Flame Chamber - Motor Vehicles
The Atlas HMV is the preferred flame chamber for conducting burn rate and burn resistance tests on automotive interior materials. Its durable stainless steel construction, large glass viewing window, door- mounted burner and lift-off top cover for easy specimen access greatly enhance user convenience. The loading of specimens is simplified with a unique snap-together specimen holder. The optional Automatic Gas Control (AGC) features a digital timer and push-button gas controls that provide automatic or manual flame impingement modes. The Atlas HMV was designed with the user in mind.
